I am a physician with more than 3o years of clinical experience with internal medicine and sexual health as a professor at University of California, San Francisco. My work seeks ways for safer connection. I wish to help people heal from past events, live fully in the present, and look forward to the future. We may choose to use eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) or internal family systems, which can enable dream-like states while awake (without hypnosis). There are other ways that enable our inherent capacity to heal from prior trauma or the slow drip of childhood. I completed a certificate in psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy and research at the California Institute of Integral Studies (CIIS) in 2016. I pioneered and offer pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) for HIV prevention, and other sexual health services. 510-629-1204. email@example.com / www.robertgrant.org
